Read the following quotation from the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve: “‘Mia Maid girls and teachers … Kimball gave the youth of the Church the following advice: “My beloved young people, you should be serious-minded. When you get in the teenage years, your social associations should still be general acquaintance with both boys and girls.have many activities of a social nature planned for them, both in their school and Church programs, which they should enjoy in groups. Any dating or pairing off in social contacts should be postponed until at least the age of 16 or older, and even then there should be much judgment used in selections and in the seriousness.I mentioned joining Meetup for some things that she likes to do: hiking, sports, other active pursuits. Very few men (and perhaps no single men) will be in her work environment.Trying to help her figure out ways to meet people her age, esp. They should avoid boy-girl single-dating relationships’” (“Policies and Procedures,” Jan. “Young people should still limit the close contacts for several years, since the boy will be going on his mission when he is 19 years old.
I know their background is a little more conservative and I'm definitely not. I had a friend that once said that the only guys that hit on her are black men. Yes, I've had that experience, but it is not limited to a particular ethnic group. I usually counter this typecast by surrounding myself in different ethnic enclaves. So it's a free for all pretty much with my dating pool. Rumi I have never dated outside of my race (white/blonde headed) simply because of my personal preferences but do not see anything wrong with it at all. That's mostly because they don't ask me out, they just make comments, or call me "beautiful" or "gorgeous" all the time. I get a disproportionate amount of attention from Jewish girls, Asian girls, and oddly, gay men. I'm sure part of it is demographics, I live in a city with high concentrations of those groups, but it doesn't really explain the disproportion to all the others.
